About Ethan

My name is Ethan S. and I'm a junior at the University of Chicago studying cancer biology. In high school, I worked as a genetics and biology peer tutor, and after graduating I spent 8 months researching at the National Cancer Institute at NIH. I've also performed tissue engineering research at the Technion in Israel, and am currently working in a breast cancer research lab at the University of Chicago Ben May Center for Cancer Research. Science has always been my greatest passion, and I'd love to help make it yours too!

I scored a 5 on AP calculus AB exam, 780 on SAT math, and have been enrolled in advanced level math courses since 9th grade. I've helped several students prepare for standardized testing (such as SAT and ACT) before, and they all brought their scores up by at least 10% after working with me. My philosophy is simple and straight forward- you can "beat" the test by understanding how its structured, often times without even reading the questions or performing any calculations.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to learn more or schedule lessons! I'd love to get to know you and talk about what I can do to help you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I've spent a combined 2 years researching at the national cancer institute at NIH, the tissue engineering institute at the Technion in Haifa, Israel, the University of Chicago institute for genomics and systems biology, and the oncology division at children's national medical center. Additionally, I'm enrolled in a research oriented advanced biology program at the University of Chicago.

College Counseling

During my senior year of high school, in addition to preparing my own college applications, I read, assisted, or advised about 50 of my friends on their essays. These kids are now attending schools like Cornell, University of Michigan, University of Richmond, Wash U, and other excellent schools. I learned all the secrets from my 3 college counselors (2 from my school and one private) and I'm ready to pass them on

Genetics

After graduating high school early, I spent 8 months researching full time at the National Cancer Institute at NIH, in the laboratory of cancer biology and genetics, in vitro pathogenesis section. I've also spent 3 months performing tissue engineering research at the Technion in Haifa, Israel, and I currently work in a synthetic biology lab at the University of Chicago institute of genomics and systems biology. I served as a genetics and biology peer tutor in high school, and won the biology department award for excellence upon graduating

Hebrew

I attended a dual-curriculum Jewish Day School for 13 years where I began learning Hebrew in 1st grade. I've been to Israel 3 times (including a 3 month research program conducted entirely in Hebrew), and I'm fluent in the language.

SAT Math

I scored a 780 on my SAT math section, a 780 on my SAT II math test, a 5 on my AP calculus test, and I've been enrolled in advanced math courses for nine years in a row.
